Gokyo Lake Renjola

It was very interesting to travel around Nepal, and very good organized. Nepal Guide Treks is trustable company in Nepal. After a week of email conversation we booked Gokyo and Renjola pass trek trip with them from online. We enjoyed culture, architecture, wonderful trekking experience, tasted healthy local food and many more things. We started to trust them from the very beginning, and thank to them, we got a good experience from our tour. We learnt many things from our guide since he was very knowledgeable. Yes, we recommend "Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition" to everyone and would be happy to contact Prakash Devkota if travel to Nepal again.
